The mystery of the unknown visitor has not yet been solved, but I couldn’t wait any longer to start posting photos from the wedding.
Having two boys and living an hour away from any photography studio made it pretty much impossible to ever get a family photo done through the years. By the time the kids were dressed up and driven an hour to a Walmart or Sears studio, their patience lasted about 5 minutes. They wanted to play not sit still for a photographer.
So, when we had a few minutes to spare before the wedding ceremony began and a beautiful background of sailboats on the water, I jumped at the opportunity and quickly grabbed my brother to play impromptu photographer. When kids get to be this age, it’s difficult to get everyone together at the same time, and we were lucky enough to have Bryan’s girlfriend, Cayley, with us as well. I was hoping for a nice picture, but I was totally ecstatic when I saw how good this one turned out. You know how it is – there is always one person not smiling or looking away from the camera or with their eyes closed. I don’t think this shot could have been much more perfect, and it is definitely going to be enlarged, framed, and put up somewhere prominent in our house. Yes, I’m a happy mommy :).
